Parking a Large Car in a Normal Garage

I don't know if I am the only one who has this problem, but they don't make garages very big these days it seems. We have a 3 car garage and it BARELY fits 2 cars!
And the cars are parked from end to end in there!!  I am not gonna lie, I have ran into the wall because I was trying to get the front of my car in as far as I could so that the garage door would close behind me!
Well I saw a great idea the other day on Pinterest and I had to share it with you all because I think it is genius!

What you need:
*pool noodle ( found mine at Big Lots for $2)
*a couple of screws

Line up your pool noodle with the part of your front bumper that sticks out the farthest.
Screw it into the wall.
You're done!


Now, when you get too close, you hit your car softly against a soft foam noodle and not the drywall!  =)

That's not a bad idea! My family has a box of unwanted old stuff in the garage that delivers a similar "crunch" service.

What a great idea! I would bet you could also put them vertically, and that way you can see the foam cylinder move a bit when you bump into it.

Something I remember from going to my grandparents house when I was little is that my grandad had a tennis ball on a string hanging down from the ceiling. When it touched the windshield of the car he knew thats where to stop. That could help you out too.
